NEW: Life after Lasik

Unlike wearing glasses, there’s nothing obvious that gives away that you’ve had Laser Eye Surgery. Unless someone knows you beforehand, it can just appear like you’ve had perfect vision all along. So what happens to these millions of people who simply blend into the background after having Laser Eye Surgery? Are they just going about their normal day-to-day lives? Does the novelty of clear vision wear off after a few months and nothing really change? Or are they living it up and… Read more

5 Natural Beauty Tips for Vibrant and Healthy Eyes

2017 was a year that bore witness to a ton of health and beauty trends that came and went. And like most years, many of those trends were much stranger than they were beautifying. Smudged lipstick to achieve that ‘just-kissed’ look. Jade rollers, a jade paint-roller type tool, to ‘rejuvenate’ your face and neck. And bleached eyebrows to, well, make you look super creepy, to name just a few. As usual, some of the trends stuck, but most of them, I’m looking… Read more

Autumn is the season of colours

Colours are all around us. And should we stop for long enough to notice them, we realise they make our world not just look incredible, but our experiences a whole lot richer. They are, after all, what enable us to become awestruck at such scenes as a sunset, a rainbow lorikeet, a Henry Matisse or Van Gogh painting, and the bloom of the cherry blossoms in spring. But beyond mere pleasure for the senses, in the natural environment, colours have a whole other… Read more

What Can Damage Your Eyes?

Every day, we hear about things that are bad for our health. The latest one is 5G. Because it uses higher frequency waves, it requires more transmitter masts that are positioned closer to the ground. This is triggering the long-debated question about how radio waves affect us, in particular in relation to certain cancers. Although such concerns to our health come and go and are hard to back up with hard evidence, the ones that relate to the health of our eyes… Read more

How to look after your eyes on holiday this summer

Spending a few hours in the sun is one of the best shortcuts to looking and feeling younger and healthier. But without taking the proper precautions, it’ll quickly do the opposite: damaging the body and leading to macular degeneration, sunburn, skin cancer, and perhaps worst of all, wrinkles. This isn’t good news for anyone not wanting to return from their holidays looking older than when they went. Fortunately, however, to protect yourself from the sun you don’t need to rock up to… Read more

Why Summer After Laser Eye Surgery is So Much Better

What comes to mind when you think of summer? The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of waves crashing, afternoons spent barbecuing with the family or whole evenings outside drinking wine and chatting with friends? When you’re a glasses or contacts wearer, these images of summer are nothing more than idealistic fantasies. The reality is, your best time of the year is more likely consumed by fighting off allergies and eye problems and dealing with all the inconveniences that come with… Read more

Guide to Dry Eyes and Laser Eye Surgery

Up there with the most complex parts of the human body, and for that matter the known universe, is the eye. The eyes are the body’s natural cameras that capture light, convert it to waves of electrochemical signals, and magically conjure up the images we see. With so much complexity, the eye requires an ultra-precise arrangement of components in order to function correctly. And, like a pearl sitting in a clamshell, such a delicate design needs appropriate protection. For the eye, one… Read more

A New Reality with Man in the High Castle Writer Rob Williams

Rob Williams is somewhat of an expert in alternate realities. The acclaimed screenwriter is one of the bright minds behind the first season of ‘Man in the High Castle’ — the hit Amazon drama loosely based on Philip K. Dick’s novel of the same name.

But as the days and weeks and years pass, the reality of what you’ve bought into becomes all too clear.
